Under guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Governor of Minnesota, some operations at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres (CDT) are currently suspended including performances of The Music Man. CDT will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate as more information about COVID-19 unfolds.
A fun and transformative story, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best! This musical theatre classic features songs like “(Ya Got) Trouble,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” “Till There Was You,” “Gary, Indiana” and more! Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.
The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
